Richard White is co-founder and CEO of UserVoice, where he focuses on making sexy products for un-sexy markets, like customer service.
Prior to UserVoice, White was the lead designer for Kiko.com, a Y-Combinator-funded calendaring product that drew praise for its clean design, which was sold on eBay for $258,000. After Kiko, White founded SlimTimer, simple time-tracking for freelancers, where he experimented with name-your-own-price freemium models.
The common thread throughout all these ventures is White’s passion for building wonderfully simple productivity tools with delightful user experiences. He’s proud to say that his works give people more time to waste, rather than waste more of their time. White’s expertise lies in UI design and UX, but in a past life, he graduated with BS in computer science from North Carolina State University.
